5 ideas for your Nappy bag


Are you joining our Nappy Bag sewalong? In case you haven't decided for the fabric you're going to use, we have 5 ideas for you to think about before May 1st!

The Nappy Bag is a roomy bag that's perfect for showcasing your best fabric. 

Give florals a try 

We really loved Katie's bright and bold bag and we can imagine other type of floral fabrics working beautifully with this pattern. If you're planning on using this bag a lot, take in consideration the colours in your wardrobe you tend to wear most and choose either a contrasting or a matching colour. Plus, spring is the perfect season for florals!

A geometric vibe

If you love bright colours but can't really imagine yourself wearing a big, floral bag, you could try a colourful geometric pattern, like this bright green and blue bag Dee from Dee-Zines made. You can imagine how irresistible your bag is going to be just by seeing the grandson's excitement over this version.

Up cycle an old pair of jeans 

We love it when incredibly creative people such as Annette turn something old and no longer useful into something new like this up cycled denim nappy bag. We love the bright pink handles, which make the bag look really fun and fresh. Another idea would be to use piping in a crazy colour.

Mix and match 

If you're a genius with mixing patterned fabrics like Stacey, and love a bold look, then the nappy bag is the perfect project for those fabric remnants you love so much. 

Make a travel bag

The nappy bag can be also used as a weekend bag and we particularly love this classy version made by Liz from the Moments Blog. You could use sturdy fabrics like denim and canvas or, if you're feeling brave enough, try this pattern in leather or vinyl. 

What about you? What are your ideas for your new nappy bag?
